Dedicated student, eager to learn and excel in my academic studies
- Institution: King’s College London - University of London, UK
- Period: Sep 2017 - Aug 2018
During this 1-year mathematics graduate programme at KCL, I developed a strong and robust mathematical foundation for further studies and research in theoretical physics. Many of the technical skills I acquired here are highly transferable to other fields of applied mathematics and statistics. My mathematical intuition to interpret and build mathematical models for simple and complex systems was refined.
- Institution: Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
- Classification: First Class Honours
- Period: Sep 2013 - Jun 2017
Over the course of my degree, I was able to develop the intuition to identify relevant laws and principles and apply appropriate mathematical tools and approximations when working on advanced problems in physics. Throughout my Undergraduate studies, I developed several scientific computing projects, with a focus on data analysis, molecular dynamics, and simulations. The looooong hours spent in the lab exposed me to advanced experimental methods in collection of experimental data, and I gained experience in evaluating the significance of the data, drawing relevant conclusions, applying the appropriate mathematical methods and calculating the significant statistics (it was worth it after all!). I also got plenty of experience in communicating scientific information and producing clear and accurate scientific reports.
Intercultural Exchange Year
- Institution: River Ridge High School, USA
- Classification: 93% GPA
- Period: Aug 2011 - May 2012
Took part in a 1-year exchange program (AFS - American Field Service) for my last year of secondary studies. Achieved top grades for mathematics, physics, and chemistry with scores ranging from 95% to 100%. Selected for a worldwide science and engineering competition (WYSE) where I won 1st place in the Physics examination.
Science & Technology High School Diploma
- Institution: Escola Salesiana de Manique, Portugal
- Classification: 80% GPA
- Period: Sep 2008 - Jun 2011
Took the “Science & Technology” path for my secondary education, focussing on higher level science and mathematics. Scored 85% on the Physics & Chemistry national exam, placing me in the country’s top 3%.
